SUGAR GROVE - Sunday's final round of play in the Mid-American Conference Men’s Golf Championship at Rich Harvest Farms was canceled due to persistent weather delays. Based upon the 54-hole final scores from Saturday, the Huskies finish the tournament in seventh-place with a three-round total score of 905.
Play began at 8 a.m., on Sunday morning before the first weather delay of the final round halted action at around 10:15 a.m. Following a four-hour delay, play resumed for about two hours until a second delay finally forced the cancelation of the final round at 4:30 p.m.
“Obviously we are disappointed that we were unable to finish today’s final round,” NIU coach Tom Porten said. “But our congratulations go out to Kent State on an excellent tournament. I want to thank The Rich family for allowing us to use their spectacular venue to host our conference championship. It means a great deal for our conference to be able to play this event on one of the finest courses in the country. I would also like to thank all of the staff from Rich Harvest Farms, the MAC and NIU, as well as the volunteers, for making this a successful event.”
NIU freshman Thomas Dunne is the highest-placing Huskie, finishing in a tie for eighth with a 54-hole total of 220.
